Charlamagne Tha God Says Biden’s Senate Voting Record ‘Reflects Very Racist Legislation’

Radio host Charlamagne tha God slammed former Vice President Joe Biden over what he calls a racist Senate record.

Charlamagne tha God Throws Down the Gauntlet Regarding Joe Biden and Race Relations

Charlamagne told CNN on Tuesday that he wanted Biden to “really lean into blackness now” if he wants his endorsement in 2020.

“He did very well today in Philadelphia, you know, he said a lot of things that I wanted to hear, and I know it’s dream-selling season and politicians say what they need to in order to get elected, but I really enjoyed it,” Charlamagne said. “But I need some action, like I need him to really lean into blackness now.”

Charlamagne explained why he believes Joe Biden needs to be the Lyndon B. Johnson to Barack Obama’s JFK, particularly because of the former vice president’s poor Senate record on race relations.

“To me it’s like this: If Barack Obama was JFK, then Joe Biden needs to be Lyndon B. Johnson,” the radio host said. “You know, he has the opportunity to be as progressive as Lyndon B. Johnson. Lyndon B. Johnson may have been labeled a racist but his record doesn’t reflect that. LBJ’s record showed that he had, like, the most effective progressive record on race and class of any Democratic president of the past 80 years.”

‘Biden’s record in the Senate actually reflects very racist legislation’

“I think, you know, Biden’s record in the Senate actually reflects very racist legislation, but he has a chance to correct that by doing right by black people,” he said.

Last month, during an appearance on the “The Breakfast Club,” Biden created controversy when host Charlamagne Tha God asked the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee to come back on his show to answer “more questions” about black  issues.

“You’ve got more questions?” Biden responded. “Well I tell you what, if you have a problem figuring out whether you’re for me or Trump, then you ain’t black.”

Charlamagne then blasted Biden for being on the “front line” of promoting mass incarceration with his support of the 1994 crime bill.

“I see black communities all across America catching hell regardless of who is in the White House,” Charlamagne Tha God said. “People like to bring up coronavirus and how it’s hitting black people the hardest. That’s because we have a bunch of underlying conditions created by systemic racism that have never been fixed.”

“And like I said before, if you created legislation that hurts, then you have to create legislation that helps,” he continued. “It’s just that simple. Like, the whole system needs to be dismantled and rebuilt, and he’s been a very intricate part of that system, whether you’re talking about, you know, in ‘84 with the mandatory minimum sentences for drug dealers, or you’re talking about ‘86 with the crack laws that gave you more time for crack cocaine than powder cocaine, or you’re talking about the ’94 crime bill, like, he was really one of the people on the front line when it came to the war on drugs and mass incarceration.”

  • So Charlamagne thinks LBJ was progressive?! Tells me all I need to hear. LBJ destroyed the black family and got them hooked on public aid. So that's the progress he wants for his people.

  • LBJ was good for blacks? Charlamagne, dude, LBJ was one of the most racist mo-fo’s to ever be president. LBJ got you back on the welfare plantation and trillions of dollars later you’re still there. No wonder blacks keep voting for democrats, their facts are just so wrong. Wake up!

  • "Charlamagne told CNN on Tuesday that he wanted Biden to “really lean into blackness now” if he wants his endorsement in 2020." biden will temporarily get as black as he deems necessary if he thinks it will get him a black vote. He's already demonstrated just how truly racist he is. If you don't know how corrupt, crooked, and untrustworthy biden is by now, then you ain't American.

  • Here's what I'm wondering......If, say, a black person drinks 2 litres a day of coke from the time they are 11 yrs old for their entire lifetime and they eventually get diabetes---- or heart disease or stroke---- that's due to systemic racism? It's not because they CHOSE to drink 2 litres of coke a day for their entire life? Who made them do it? It's not due to systemic BAD CHOICES IN DIET? That's all I'm asking. It's a simple question.

  • Of course he will....he's actually begging his master, Biden to say something nice about blacks so he can feel better about voting for him.

  • First of all, Obama was no JFK. He was more like Mayor Dinkins of NYC, one of the worst. Second, Biden is no Johnson, who threw more money at social programs than any president in history with ZERO EFFECT. A complete waste. Biden is more like the boring Hubert Humphrey of 1968 who got his butt whooped by Nixon in a landslide, leading to Republicans winning 4 out of the next 5 elections.
